Raise vehicle, remove wheel(s), take off your brake caliper(s) (two bolts). hold caliper in place with wire/string out of the way careful with brake line (you don't want to damage that(don't actualy remove the brake line from the caliper either) . separate steering knuckle from strut. (two large bolts on the strut) you may need to separate tie rod end from steering knuckle as well or if you can just push it far enough to the side, then remove the cotter pin from end of cv axle its the huge nut in the center of the wheel hub. then you remove the nut from the cv axle, now you're able to remove the wheel side of cv axle. do so by bending the cv at the (outermost boot and pushing out on the steering knuckle,there are teeth between the two you will have to line up when installing. next is the tricky part getting it out of the transaxle. you'll want a rubber mallet & long flat head screw driver to carefully tap the cv with the mallet while very carefully prying with the screwdriver. (small prybar is held in by a circlip basically a small circular piece of metal thats too big for the hole its in. once you get the cv seperated from the transaxle/transmission. remove it from vehicle and install in reverse order of removal. making sure all teeth line up and the cv clips firmly into trans. very important put in a new cotter pin when you get the cv though the hub and nut very tight . good luck (repair based on 93 eclipse gs 1.8l manual trans. other models similar.)
hope this is helpful. Good Luck ; )

2001 mitsubishi eclipse gt spyder clutch removal. how do you get the axles out and how do you release the bearing for the tranmission to seperate

After the axel is removed from the outher wheel bearingf( seaparate the steering knuckle from the lower ball joint) and pull the axel out of the bearing after the axel nut has been removed then the axel will pry ou tof the transmission.. Might take a strong pry witht he haelp of a hammer. the one side might have a carrier bearing on the CV axel that bolted to the back of the engine block. It'll have to be unbolted. too. the starter will have to be removed also as all the bolts that hold the engine to the transmission.

If its a front wheel drive, check to see that your cv joint hasnt failed on the front axel. Easy way to check is jack it up in park tire should not rotate

Axle pops out of transmission

I would suggest getting a new CV axle. If it it stripped it probably wasnt installed right at some point in time and needs replaced before you end up needing a new tranny.

Axel rounded at edges

you have a spacer missing on the inner side of the axle allowing the nut to drag the axle to far out,

The only easy way is to sell the car! The clutch fork broke because of another problem! Not that bad to pull the tranny! Other than pulling the axels! Frankster016

1993 mitsubishi eclipse

the CHILTONS 1990-1993 Mitsubishi eclipse repair manual has extensive electical,vacuum and other such diagrams fo this vehicle about $25 at auto parts store or online. this is probably one of the most extensive resource on this vehicle, well worth the money. in fact in most cases it payes for itself the first time you use it. (in savings on mechanic/repair shop visits. it has trouble shooting and a comprehensive chapter on every system in the car.
